Default The i hate nature during this time thread aka hayfever suffers thread

ok so during winter and autumn i adore nature love spendning my days walking through jersey's stuning woods and valleys, but during spring and summer....OMG i cant take the sneezing, itching, eyes watering.

every year i try and leave it as late as possible to start taking the anti-histamines, so my body doesnt become resistant to them.

this year seems to be worse then last year, its already driving me nuts!

any one else suffer from the planet attacking them?

YES!!!!!!!
But it does get better... Or at least it has for me...
I was exactly like you during my teens and twenties, but has time has moved on I no longer suffer like I did...
Now it's just a bit of a runny nose and a couple of sneezes......

I should really elaborate how bad the hay fever has gotten as of late.

I will start with the itches, if itís not bad enough that my eyes itch like someoneís poured pepper into them and welded my eyelids shut, the itching seems to spread just as bad as a yawn in a crowded classroom, you end up clawing at your skin like you have bugs under it, so drug addict look-a-like symptom one stands in.
Then you have the sneezing and bunged up nose, this attacks at random, not like a cold where you have some warning, this is a quick tickle in the nostril and you had, so the constant sniffing to ensure youíre not gona sneeze begins, and the fear of the runny nose cause by this point the itchiness has drowned out the sensation of a runny nose.
So Iím itching my nose and sniffing so much I could play the role of a coke snorter without even trying.
and letís not forget the watering eyes this has you looking like an emotional wreck ready to burst into full on tears at the first wrong word, this is not helped by the itchy eyes, which try as you may you cannot defy the itch, and you end up with redder eyes then stoner at a caneing session.

So great Iím sat at work clawing at my skin, sniffing, scratching my nose, being twitchy and looking like im about to break down.

Thank you nature for giving my work mates and bosses every right to believe I am a jumped up junky on a come down.

Ohh why didnít I take my anti-histamines this morning

i never had hay fever but developed it (along with other random, silly allergies) as i got older!

it was hell in spain as im allergic to palm trees!

i havent been as bad here but i have to take antihistamines every day, all year round. the doctor changes them over every couple of months, so i rotate 3 types.

i also have eye drops and nasal sprays and when really bad steriods!

i take my eye drops, nasal spray and tabelets at night and use the spray and drops in the morning.

i get itchy, sneezy, snifles, sore throat and red eyes too and often wake up with a bloody nose where ive rubbed it in my sleep!

the doctors said to put vasaline around the edges of my nostrils to trap pollen but i always forget!!

bloody pollen!

I keep sneezing this year and getting a blocked nose. Hoping it is just a slight cold but it has gone on for to long. Never had this before.

Don't hate the allergen hate the allergy......it's your immune system's fault! All those flowers and trees are trying to do is reproduce! You should be grateful!







give it a few weeks and i'll be in your boat as well i'm sure!
